Subject[PATCH 3.18 10/26] vti6: fix device register to report IFLA_INFO_KIND
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: David Forster <dforster@brocade.com>


[ Upstream commit 93e246f783e6bd1bc64fdfbfe68b18161f69b28e ]

vti6 interface is registered before the rtnl_link_ops block
is attached. As a result the resulting RTM_NEWLINK is missing
IFLA_INFO_KIND. Re-order attachment of rtnl_link_ops block to fix.
